1. Depends on your abilities. Generally something in the range of 30-60 minuts if not a bit longer.

2. Very well rounded. Above average in competitions, not elite. Most elites have better stats than L3.

Probably wouldn't place top unless you got a lot of exercises you were really, really good at.

Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

Okay here's a quick question. Who thinks main page would be better if they DID follow the theoretical template?

Nope. i reckon the template is good as a 'theoretical template' but for main site i like the variation.

Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

I'm sure your answer will be the same, but I just want to clarify when I say "better" I mean more effective.

Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

The theoretical template still uses varied movements, it was developed by CrossFit after all.

Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

I'm not arguing one way or the other. I'm just asking.

OPT used the theoretical template if you go back in his archives a few years...I thought it was pretty darned good programming.
